Those are awesome!  I myself am only 15, and I haven't even ATTEMPTED chain maille with anodized rings, or rubber ones.  I wish one of my friends could do chain maille like your niece...her friends are going to love them so much.  That's something to keep forever!

You must be an awesome teacher for her to crank out those beauties   Grin

Thanks everyone.  She is just soooo pleased with herself and your responses.

She will be here this week spending part of her vacation making jewelry.  I'm thinking I might have to set up an etsy for her to start making some college cash.  Wink

Thanks for the info.  I looked at the hardware store, and they were way too expensive.   I didn't really think about FMJ, I'll have to check out the places you've mentioned.  My bf found a design he loves and I'd like to try to make it for him...

Your neice def. has talent!  It is very impressive that she was able to make such beautiful bracelts!  She should feel very proud!

One word.....W Shocked W!!

As someone who began my bead crafting as a young teen, I know how much I used to love positive feedback for the trinkets and goodies I would make.  Your niece has shown not only the interest in something far beyond her years, but she's exhibited patience, quality craftsmanship and a very careful eye for detail.

She should be extremely proud of these lovely pieces she's created, and I'll bet once she and her friends all wear them around school, she'll have many more orders pouring in for more of her wonderful creations!

It's a great idea to get her an etsy storefront.  I think it'll not only encourage the craftiness, but, as you said, enable her to put some college cash away for the future. 

Awesome job.  You're an inspiration to those of us who are two, three, four times your age who may hesitate in trying something that looks a little complicated.  Wink

In a nutshell..... YOU GO GIRL!!!! Grin Grin Grin

Thanks for the feedback.  Leah is still sleeping so I'm going to let her read this when she gets up.  She "worked" late into the night last night learning a new weave.  I don't think she's quite ready to show it yet, but I'll bet she will.

The Japanese mail that I posted for her is, to me, the easiest mail to make, which is why I started her with that.  It gives an almost instant air of accomplishment, and that, as you know, breeds continuing accomplishment,

Thanks again, all, off to make the waffles.
